Amb. Chris Stevens still dead, State Department officials still keep jobs

Josh Margolin @ The NY Post:

The four officials supposedly out of jobs because of their blunders in the run-up to the deadly Benghazi terror attack remain on the State Department payroll — and will all be back to work soon, The Post has learned.

The highest-ranking official caught up in the scandal, Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, has not “resigned” from government service, as officials said last week. He is just switching desks. And the other three are simply on administrative leave and are expected back.

The four were made out to be sacrificial lambs in the wake of a scathing report issued last week that found that the US compound in Benghazi, Libya, was left vulnerable to attack because of “grossly inadequate” security.

State Department leaders “didn’t come clean about Benghazi and now they’re not coming clean about these staff changes,” a source close to the situation told The Post., adding, the “public would be outraged over this.”

US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11 attack, originally blamed on a spontaneous demonstration against a US-made anti-Islam video that got out of hand.

That version was dismissed by an Accountability Review Board headed by retired Ambassador Thomas Pickering.

In response to questions from The Post, the State Department would only reissue the carefully crafted statement put out last week.

    As I read the report it seemed as though no one alive ought to be fired for those four deaths.
    It seemed like the report made it all Ambassador Stevens’ fault.
    So, I’m not surprised by this move.

    No surprise here, the left has no idea what the terms “personal responsibility’ or “professional ethics” mean, they are all about distraction and misinformation. I would like to know the following:
    1) What was Stevens’ mission in Benghazi?
    2) Why was existing security pulled back in the summer?
    3) Exactly who denied assistance after the shit hit the fan there?
    4) Who in the White House authorized the campaign of lies?
    5) Why won’t Patreaus speak the truth, even now?
    6) Did Fast & Furious go away too?

    One thing the left has proven without question… they have no concern for ethical actions, responsibility or the truth.
